One of the country's major artistic and cultural centers, famed for its many annual festivals, Cork straddles the Lee River and boasts over 30 bridges. Asked to describe their city in a few words, locals often define it as the "real capital of Ireland." The walkable town center, situated on an island formed by river channels, serves as Cork's main shopping and dining area, attracting a growing number of discerning foodies from around Europe. A dynamic city with a modern outlook, Cork features a lively nightlife scene packed with trendy bars and clubs, though the traditional pub with live music and local cuisine remains a regional institution and a major tourist attraction. Cork is in County Cork. Make the most of your holiday in Cork by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Ireland itinerary planner.
